Now arriving at the Conservatory: Paul Busse Garden Railway! The brand new exhibition features model trains whirling through four unique botanical themes on 1,122 feet of track in the Grand Mallway.
The Garden Railway invites visitors to explore botanical themes of enchanting and immersive scale, from Fairytale Land to Wild West Town and the animal-themed models in Who Lives Here, to the European Travels destination. Features include an enchanted children’s tree cove, two waterfalls, a bubbling brook, sculpted cedar mountains, and plantings specific to each theme.
Guests can wind their way through a miniature world of 51 botanical models made from all-natural plant material as the 9 g-scale model trains whirl overhead and below.
The Paul Busse Garden Railway train set was donated in memory of John F. Wolfe.
